Pollen can be your enemy- but when it gets inside it can be a sneak attack! Here are some ways to battle the pollen inside your home.
1. Make one room a "sanctuary". Even though you don't want to turn on the A/C, use a window air conditioner and run it on the fan setting. This will help keep the air clean and fresh.
2. Use your vacuum as a weapon against the pollen. Put on the dusting brush and use it to dust all your furniture. You are capturing the pollen inside the vacuum. Make sure you have an excellent filter on your vacuum!
3. Use a damp microfiber cloth and wipe your furniture down after you have vacuumed it. Use the "blue cloth" microfiber and you don't have to worry about hurting the furniture or drying the wood afterwards. It will leave it clean and sparkling!
4. Keep your pets isolated if they go outside. Remember that your pets are collecting pollen while they are outside and bringing it back inside to you. Keep them out of your "sanctuary" and wipe their fur with a dry microfiber cloth to collect the pollen on their coat.
Your body is like a bucket, and when it gets full you have reactions to pollen and other allergens. Make sure you have somewhere in your home that is clean and free from dust and pollen.
